I work at a cafe that makes fresh pastries and desserts and when looking for recipes I settle for absolutely nothing less than the best. I have a very high standard and I was skeptical. But these were wonderful cookies and I admit that I ate them for dinner and then for breakfast the next day. I couldn't keep my paws off of them! They are not big like the recipe says but pressing down on them before baking does help a lot. These will definitely be going in my lineup at the cafe!

this is the third time i've made this recipe, i make it just like instructed and it's perfect, better than coffee shop cookies. i tend to refridgerate cookie dough for 5-10 mins before i bake. make sure to press down on the cookies slightly so it cooks evenly.

These are lovely cookies. I used a 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop. It made a 3 inch cookie, so if you want something bigger-change accourdingly. It made 35 cookies. I baked till just lightly browned on the edges. I let cool 2 min on pan before removing to racks to cool.

5 stars. I have made over a dozen 5 star recipes, but this one was PERFECT. I used what I had in the kitchen, vegan butter and flax eggs. It was still delicious! I also ran out of sugar and rolled the cookie balls into powered sugar. Can someone say cracked out! Our pleasure sensors went nuts after a bite.

I seriously think these cookies are just about the best I've ever tasted! I made them for my pregnant daughter-in-law (because of the ginger) but loved them so much I intend to make another batch today! By the way, I followed the recipe exactly; didn't change or add anything. Perfect!!

Excellent! Followed instructions exactly and made 32, finished size 2 1/2 ", not all that big but perfect size. I have one of those old Cushionaire cookie sheets (think that is what they are called) that always makes perfect cookies every time - never burnt.
